What started as a barbecue in front of a garage many years ago turned into a hotspot for meat lovers. All there menus on the list are so delicious and the hose wine, called "most" is very drinkable. We go there at least twice in each vacation.

Really out of the way location. Once you are in... it's iberian pork heaven. Whatever you like (presa, secretos, sausage, chorizo, etc, etc, etc) they got and it's is amazing. For side dishes try the "papa arruga" (boiled potatoes in salted water with garlic and pepper sauce) and a simple but delicious tomato salad. Don't forget to drink the "mosto".... More

Off the beaten track but a veritable delight for genuine Spanish food particularly meats. If you can find it dont be put off by the drab exterior, inside tells you all you need to know - boars head on the walls and antlers as chandelier holders give you the character of real local Spanish food for locals. Try the 'wrinkled... More

The grilled Iberian pork meat is excellent. The house wine is very interesting and the prices are very good. It's not easy to find but it's worth visiting.

Set in a small village in the hills above Isla Cristina the restaurant is rustic with a true traditional feel.

Also known as El Cholesterol, this place is a meat lovers paradise. Not in Ayamonte as such, more just outside Isla Cristina and on a small estate tucked away so check the map before you go. Starters are simple, but the boiled spuds with a cumin and chilli oil dressing are really good as is the simple tomato salad with... More

Visited with friends who have property in nearby Islantilla so they have managed to disciver some true gems via advice from Spannish neighbours. A bit offputting on the drive in and looks nothing from the outside but what a place. Full of locals having their midday meal complete with children and extended families. Salad with beef tomatoes and delicious dressing... More

Fantastic place for Pork lovers, also known as the "Cholesterol". The meat speciality of the house, is excellent. The ptatoes "papas arrugas" also and so are all the dishes. We love the "mosto de la casa" served in jugs. Friendly. Very cheap.
